We are accepting VA questionnaires and necessary documents for the spring, summer, and fall 2016 semesters if you have registered for your classes. Complete a separate questionnaire for each semester.

We are accepting requests for the Hazlewood exemption for the summer and fall 2016 semesters and the spring 2017 semester if

  • you have used it previously at UT Austin, or
  • have been admitted and paid your enrollment deposit.

You may apply for those semesters on the same form.

The deadline for submitting your application and necessary documents for the Hazlewood exemption is the last class day for that semester.
